Sydney by Day

Sydney is a great metropolitan city, the largest in Australia, with active harbors, lively urban scenes, beaches, the arts, food galore, music, and you name it. Although I did see cyclists riding the streets, it is not a bike friendly city like Melbourne. We arrived on a Friday and stayed through the weekend which included the annual "Mardi Gra" Parade with countless thousands of people, mostly the young, roaming the streets late into night.
